RE: Alesis INEKO and a MIDI throwdown

Title: RE: Alesis INEKO and a MIDI throwdown

Right now I have it set up where I use 3-4 effects I know (and needed) and so I know the knob settings for those ones.. This works great for that kind of stuff.

Having tried it out for a few hours, I really don't think it is a unit to fool with on stage, unless your audience loves you in a way I have never experienced.  Maybe Rick Walker can get away with it, but I can't.  When you change patches, you have to set the parameters--NO MEMORY FOR PRESETS.  I am going to use it as a set-and-forget device, no matter what context. MIDI rocks and rules--I can't believe there are electronic musicians who aren't interested in using it.  Oh, just for emphasis, I'd like to say--chicken? Let the flaming begin.
